I’m Shannon, and I adore cosplaying and providing content for others. I’m a fan of cosplaying in groups and duos, and I love to meet new people! Don’t be afraid to come say, “Hello.” 🙂
I’m Sarah! I’ve been a fan of anime, manga, and video games since I was a kid. I’ve recently gotten back into the world of cosplay and conventions, and I’m loving every minute! Maison Ikkoku is my favorite manga, and Cardcaptor Sakura is my favorite anime. I’m so excited to share my love of Cardcaptor Sakura with my fellow fans, especially with the new Clear Cards series coming out! I would love to do this panel at future cons, and I hope I’ll see you there, too!

Hello! My name is Emma though I also go by rainydaysandtiramisu on most social media platforms! I’m a professional cosplayer, which isn’t saying much since most of my work as a professional cosplayer is done in my pajamas. I’ve only been cosplaying for about two years now, so I’m still a baby in the cosplay community, but I’m working hard to grow every day! Unfortunately, when it comes to gaining experience in the cosplay world a lot of mistakes and crying is involved, but I’m getting there, slowly, but surely! I’ve hosted and participated in a multitude of panels (most of them successful but everyone experiences a few train wrecks along the way) and I’ve hosted at a few conventions now as well. I’m excited to be working alongside MiyakoCon this year and I hope it will be a good one!
Lily loves Minecraft and anime and lives the Kawaii culture. Her dreams are to become a YouTube personality and to see the Eiffel Tower lit up at night. Although she has assisted with many panels, this will be her first convention as a panelist for Creation Station.
